Medical sonography is a medical imaging modality used across many medical disciplines because of its relative low cost and easy accessibility, with its use constantly growing. Currently, there are many high quality ultrasound imaging systems available that are easily transportable, making it a diagnostic tool amenable to bedside and office scanning. This book includes sonography applications usable across a number of medical disciplines including radiology, thoracic medicine, urology, rheumatology, obstetrics and fetal medicine and neurology.
The book is divided into two sections. The first section is comprised of author contributions that revisit established applications in medical sonography such as biliary, testicular and breast sonography, and sonography in early pregnancy. The second section outlines some interesting applications of sonography that are still in their early stages, such as fetal yawning as an indicator of safe neurological development, and transcranial sonography used to assess the intracranial arteries and also to investigate mental effort and cognitive competence. A number of chapters look at applications and techniques used to assess tissue perfusion, and three- and fourdimensional sonography are also featured.
Considering the rapid advances in technology and sonography applications, it is important that the users regularly update their professional knowledge. The final chapter looks at preferred ways for achieving this for health professionals using sonography.
